HARRIMAN – Timothy Lance

June 15, 1988 – September 28, 2010

Timothy Harriman, a beautiful soul, a compassionate man and a world changer. At the end of life on earth not many will leave a legacy as big or as great as Tim’s. Tim left earth and entered the gates of Heaven on the beautiful morning of September 28th at the age of twenty two. The leaves were spinning, the sky was clear and blue, the air was warm and peace filled the hearts and lives of those blessed enough to call him their own. He will be always cherished as an amazing son, brother, cousin, nephew, friend and husband. You may remember Tim as the Spokeman who biked across Canada in two thousand and seven for Childhood Cancer, raising incredible amounts of support. His heart was so big. Not only will his family ache for him, but so will those inspired by his ride, in Airdrie and all over the world. Tim fought a valiant fight against cancer once as a young teenager, and three more times in his early twenties. In spite of the circumstances surrounding him, he choose to live life to the full, enjoy each moment, marry the girl of his dreams, travel, cook, write a book, spend time with friends and mentor youth. He dreamed of building his dream home, owning a motorcycle, having children and continuing to impact everyone he met. Now, he is face to face with his Maker, family members and friends, happier now than ever before. Tim enjoyed family barbeques, camping at Mount Kidd, hiking, photography, creating, building, singing loud in the shower, late night talks, funny movies, riding his bike, rollerblading and going for walks with his wife. Tim always had a witty comeback for everything, a daredevil comment, and confidence standing up for what was right and just. Tim attended George Mac High School and graduated from Bert Church High School. His teachers, principals and the staff at both schools were so touched and impacted by his presence, his determination and will to do school work and graduate during such an intense time in his life. He never quit. Never ever. Instead he inspired everyone. He dug his heels in and stood firm. There are no words that could possibly sum up such an incredible person, you are one of a kind, there will never be another like you Tim. I’m so happy you are home with our Maker, your best friend Jesus. I can’t wait to run and jump into your arms my love! In the mean time, run with the lions, soar with the eagles, sing, dance, sprint, and I will see you soon. I love you.

“In honor of Tim Harriman, a fund has been set up care of Deborah Boccabella in trust for Christa Harriman at any TD Canada Trust location.”

    Tim was a true hero – always smiling, always wanting to help others. Tim had huge dreams and he never gave up on achieving those dreams. Tim helped so many people, many of whom he never met but through his amazing efforts to raise awareness of the issues surrounding Childhood Cancer and through raising funds for this cause, Tim made and will continue to make a remarkable difference. I am certain we will all carry a small part of Tim with us and hopefully we can carry on with his dreams and challenge ourself to dream his dreams. Tim remained a true hero and was looking after others, especially Christa to the very end. Rest well my friend – you have made a very large postiive difference to this world in your very short life. Love you Tim.

    I knew Tim through working at Innovative Health Group. He was by far the most inspiring person I’ve ever met.

    His vision knew no boundaries. When he first came into Innovative with the dream to bike across Canada I think a lot of us thought “this kid is crazy”. But through all his determination and success he taught us all just how powerful “crazy” can be.

    My deepest sympathies to all his family and friends. The world has lost a remarkable and beautiful person but heaven has gained an angel.

    Peace and Love
    Vanessa

  6. I had the priviledge of sharing a meal with Christa and Tim and our mutual friend Amber. It was a wonderful time and mainly because I enjoyed seeing the love that you both had for each other. Christa- the love that you and Tim shared is one that inspires many- it inspired me. It is the type of love that brings forth peace, happiness and joy here on earth. I know that Tim is now with our Lord, and I want you to know that I am praying for the family he left here on earth. I am certain he is waiting with open arms for you all. And I consider myself blessed to have known Tim even for a small part of his beautiful and far reaching life.

  12. My condolence goes out to Christa and Tim’s family, and his extended family and friends. I know Christa, but I never met Tim, but from what I’ve heard, they lost an awesome young man! He fought the battle with cancer with all that was in him. He didn’t let it just ”take” him without putting up one heck of a fight! And Christa, you are such an amazing person and was such a great support for him. You two were truly blessed to have each other! You have great memories of him, and hold that close to your heart. And to Tim’s parents, I have two sons the same age as Tim, so my heart is aching for you. Take care and God bless to all of you.

He loved life and wanted those around him to savour every moment with joy. Christa, you married a wonderful man; Heather and Jerry, you raised an amazing son. May happy memories such as these, lighten your burden of grief in the days ahead.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of tremendous loss. We spent some time with Tim when he stopped at Strathmore on his courageous Spokeman Tour for Childhood Cancer. He was accompanied by our friends Bruce and Bette Welch. Our son-in-law Mark who joined Tim for a few kilometers of what was a very wet and cold ride cherishes the memory of spending this time with him. We were so impressed with Tim and his courageous, inspirational Tour for childhood cancer. We followed his website postings and were kept informed by Bruce and Bette. May you take comfort in knowing that Tim was a true inspiration and an individual who touched many lives.
    Sincerely,
    Garry and Doreen McKinnon
